Information Communication Support to Crisis Management in Environment Protection
AbstractThe use of an all-present and effi cient computer-communication technology (ICT) during planning and rational procedures of preventive and repressive environment protection, waste management (gOTP) and implementation of rat poisoning, disinsectization and disinfection (DDD) in the area of the City of Osijek has not become a standard procedure yet. Putting in the limelight of the new and verified ICT possibilities and new functionalities in the use of the Internet for planning and implementation of gOTP and preparing of preventive and repressive DDD procedure implementation in the area of the City of Osijek and the area of Eastern Slavonia can dramatically decrease business costs, increase the effects of protection means application and especially influence environment preservation. The use of the available data bases about space and the possibility of manipulation with this spatial data bring us even closer to the time, when the control and the supervision over space will be in real time with possibilities of direct intervention. In this paper, some possibilities and the operationalization of a systematic approach to the formation of various communication and network services in the Internet environment for the purpose of management and improvement of ICT use in gOTP and DDD, especially in the field of public health care are being considered. Especially presented is the building of the information system and its testing implementation in the environment of interactive use of WWW service illustrated with preparing of preventive and curative combating of various pests in urban and rural communities. Structure, friendliness of use and the systematic quality of the approach and the use of network services in the Internet, as well as the possibility for the use of computer aided techniques for an effective and quick resolution of environment protection problems on a large area are being emphasized. Also some temporal, spatial and financial quantifi cations, we had achieved by a systematic verification of implemented users support, are given.From the perspective of the users and the administrators of the prepared software, available numeric and graphic data, as well as automated textual reports related to DDD and waste management jobs in interactive multimedia environment were systematically analyzed. The importance and some forms of indirect benefits, which through the use of WWW service in the Internet become or already are an imperative support to various jobs for various expert and operative structures related to these two activities, are being emphasized. In the paper, organizational, data and communication component of the information system prototype for waste disposal and management is described, and apart from the measurable and immeasurable, as well as direct and indirect results of the information technology application, some procedures in crisis situations are also quoted. The information given in this paper is intended for scientific, educational, managerial and operational structures in the activity of waste disposal and gOTP, as well as all jobs in DDD, and especially relate to an efficacious management of various ICT services in the management, planning and operationalization of environment protection under the circumstances of sustainable development.
